Want to Sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Srsly.

(And, no, you don't have to be a Mormon.)

Let me guess. You were in choir in high school but since then you haven't really had time or opportunity to sing, except in your car or shower. But every now and then you'll hear a Christmas song or something and automatically know the harmony because of your experience back then, and you remember it wasn't horrible to learn a part and sing in a choir, right?

Or maybe you're super-famous and have made your career from being a singer, I don't know your life.

Either way: get your robes back on, Friends: now you can sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (yes, that one) for a special Easter performance of Handel's Messiah. Which song? Hallelujah Chorus. Dude, you totally know that one!


The voice submissions (made online) will be mixed and played during the performance. You know, now that I think of it? Sure, you can say you sang with the MoTab, but when it comes down to it? They'll be singing along with YOU.

This will be the world's largest virtual Hallelujah Chorus, you should be a part of it. Here's an example of what can be done when people submit their voices for a virtual choir:


Come on. You should do this.

Let's review:

What?
Yes. You can sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for a special Easter performance.

I'm not even in Salt Lake.
But you are online. This is called a Virtual Choir: Your part is done online and put together with the other voices.

How? 
Easy:
1. pick your voice part; download the music and practice
2. make a video of yourself singing your part
3. upload it, and use the hashtag #Hallelujah
The instructions are clear, but if you need help, ask me (I'm serious) (you know I mean it).

Who, me? 
YOU. Yes, you there thinking, "She doesn't mean me." I MEAN YOU.

But I'm not a Mormon.
You're invited. And you can sit by me. I'll be singing alto, but I'll sit anywhere.


The sooner you get this done the better! Start now by listening to your voice part (Soprano? Alto? Tenor? Bass?), downloading the sheet music, and practicing. Upload your video before the March 1st deadline, and tell your friends.

And then come back here so we can discuss how utterly thrilled Brother Mack Wilberg looks to be directing the likes of you and me.

(Don't forget: #Hallelujah)

How cool is that? If I get some time, I'll give it a try. Our Gospel Choir got to sing at the Tabernacle last year in a diversity celebration. It was SO awesome! Thanks for sharing.
